“A starship captain’s most solemn oath is that he will give his life, even his entire crew, rather than violate the Prime Directive.” (Captain James T. Kirk)
“Someone once told me that time was a predator that stalked us all our lives. But I rather believe that time is a companion who goes with us on the journey — reminds us to cherish every moment because they’ll never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we’ve lived. After all, Number One, we’re only mortal.” (Captain Jean-Luc Picard)
“There’s an old saying, Fortune favors the bold. Well, I guess we’re about to find out.” (Captain Benjamin Sisko)
“Abandon ship? The answer’s ‘no.’ I’m not breaking up the family. We’re stronger as a team.” (Captain Kathryn Janeway)
Reposting this one all by itself because I JUST REALLY LIKE HOW THEY CAME OUT OKAY. SPIRK “HAND JOBS” ALL DAY ERR’DAY ALRIGHT.
Harry Potter and the Seven Heavenly Virtues (part 2/2): Practicing the virtues is said to protect him/her against temptation from the seven deadly sins, each one having its counterpart. Due to this, they are sometimes referred to as the “contrary virtues.”
my captain does not answer, his lips are pale and still / my father does not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will / the ship is anchor’d safe and sound, its voyage closed and done / from fearful trip the victor ship comes in with object won / exult o shores, and ring o bells! / but i with mournful tread / walk the deck my captain lies / fallen cold and dead ;; walt whitman, o captain my captain.
#not enough people talk about this scene#not enough people talk about how scott looks terrified#how if stiles’ dad wasn’t there he wouldn’t have let stiles go in there#how scott was just stabbed by his best friend and forgave him seconds after#and loves him so much that he doesn’t feel comfortable with him not being right by his side#how scott probably spent all his time worried sick#how he needed to know that stiles was going to okay#the way stiles leans in way too close and looks like he’s fighting to kiss him#because maybe it’s the last time#and the way scott doesn’t say goodbye#because the word goodbye is way too heavy for a moment like this (Credit)

I want a sci-fi encounter where the alien species has nothing akin to “sleep”, and it’s baffling.
And I don’t mean that as in it’s a Science Officer or Medical personnel either, but like a rookie navigator or intern weapons operative who’s making their first inter-planetary trip and going to work WITH HUMANS not just via telecommunications or stuff but like IN THE FLESH and is so stoked.
They get this feeling a few weeks into their mission or what-have you that they’re missing a big piece of the puzzle like, there are a LOT of humans on this ship, but xe didn’t realize it before because “all humans look alike” but hey no that’s definitely not the same maintenance officer who was handling the proton cores six hours ago what the fuck. Xe gets time off to rest and eat and be social (which is so hard with humans because they’re pheromone detectors are so weak and nnnngh) and then goes back to work in time to see them switching??? why do you have two people do the same job what???
Why do you keep opening your mouth like that at me is this a dominance stance are you insulting me I’m so confused oh my gosh
It’s not in the fucking manual holy shit Xe is so screwed coffee and laughter and hygiene are all included what the fuck
but it’s gotta be simple and easy and not hard but how do you ask your superiors you’re the rookie gosh this is not working out.
Finally little Rookie Alien makes a human “friend”, and knows then they go off duty for food and such so knowing that human is off work Xe waits until they’re off work too and goes to their compartment number and the computer lets them in
"I apologize for disturbing you, Ensign, but I… Ensign?"
Ensign is sitting at their computer, lights blipping, there’s a half-finished maintenance report flashing on the screen and a communication device is tossed on the floor and the Rookie says their name again softly and NO RESPONSE AND
ANKDJNDLNAIND SOUND THE ALARM RED ALERT LOCK DOWN PROTOCOL THERE’S A MURDERER THE ENSIGN IS DEAD I REPEAT THEY- HOLY DECARBONATION VECTORS YOU’RE ALIVE IT’S A MIRACLE why are you displaying aggression markers at me there are security officers no do not shout i is small podling i make mistake…
I want a post Season 3 fic where Stiles is still recovering from everything that happened and one night he decides to take a bath because his Mom always took them when she got stressed out. So he’s laying in the too hot water and everything is quiet but it’s being the opposite of helpful because all he can hear is the horrible things that he (no not him, the Nogitsune, the Nogistune said them he reminds himself harshly) and remember everything he felt during that time and he just starts crying with these huge heaving sobs.
And then suddenly Derek is there because he’s taken to climbing up to his bedroom window to check on Stiles and without even thinking Stiles is wrapping himself around Derek. And he’s crying so hard and apologizing about getting his shirt wet and he’s practically pulling Derek into the tub with him. But Derek just lets him do it even though the edge of the tub is digging painfully into his stomach, he just rubs his back and mutters soothing nonsense into his ear until Stiles can finally calm down enough to understand anything he’s saying.
But by now the water’s gone cold and Stiles realizes that he’s very much naked and his face slowly turns red as he stares at the water trying to come up with something to say. Then Derek comes back into view with a towel and he unplugs the drain and Stiles steps out into the towel and lets Derek dry him off. Stiles trying to apologize again as Derek pulls some sweats out of the dresser for him. But Derek just smiles and kisses his forehead, strips down to his boxers and pulls Stiles into bed. And he just cocoons them in the blankets and Stiles rests his head on Derek’s chest and he’s rubbing his back again and carding his fingers through Stiles’ hair. And they stay quiet even though there are things they both want to say and maybe Stiles’ nightmares aren’t as bad that night and they can both actually get a decent night’s rest for a change.
